Single Use Plastics - South Australia

As the World comes together to nurture our planet, Australia is doing their part in progressively banning single use plastics state-by-state, in line with the 2025 National Packaging Targets – but as each phase out rolls out,

it can be very tricky to navigate. As a result, we will help break it down for you!

Here's where we're at for South Australia!


Prohibited from the sale, supply or distribution in South Australia:

  • Single-use plastic straws

  • Single-use plastic cutlery

  • Single-use stirrers

  • Expanded polystyrene cups

  • Expanded polystyrene bowls

  • Expanded polystyrene plates

  • Expanded polystyrene clamshell containers

  • Oxo-degradable plastic products will also be prohibited from sale, supply or distribution and manufacture and production in South Australia


  • Single-use plastic straws for people with disability or medical needs

  • Items included in shelf-ready pre-packaged food and beverage items (example: straw on a juice-box)


While we're doing everything we can to stay up to date with the latest news, you can find the most recent information on the South Australian Government Website.
